Joyce
Joyce is a 50-year-old married woman with four children living in Kasese, Uganda.

She has been selling cassava flour for 12 years and also practices farming for additional income. With the proceeds, she has been able to pay school fees for her children and buy more land for farming.

Unpredictable weather changes and price fluctuation are her major challenges. Her dream is to own a food store that can supply her customers all year round.

Joyce will use the loan requested to buy cassava flour to sell.
